VCA

FUNCTION DESCRIPTION

The SW902 Voltage-Controlled Amplifier is a differential input and output circuit which gives an overall voltage gain of 2 (6 dB) when manual control potentiometer is at maximum, or when a control voltage of 6 Volts is applied to the control input. Two modes of gain are available: Linear and exponential.

This Module is based on the original design from 1969
MUSICAL APPLICATION

The SW902 Voltage-Controlled Amplifier is used in any circumstances where variable gain is desired for gating or modulating AC or DC voltage sources. Articulation of a tone or sound, utilizing oscillators, controllers, envelope generators and the VCA is the basic traditional patch around which most performance oriented synthesizers are based. In addition to DC control voltage, the VCA can be controlled by varying voltages (AC) from sources like the SW 901 Oscillator. Slowly varying control voltages (2-9 Hz) can create tremolo or echo like effects upon an audio signal. Audio control frequencies create sidebands with often clangorous effects, useful for a variety of audio timbres and percussive sounds. The inverting outputs of the VCA can be useful for spatial modulation, signal inverting of control voltages, controlling two oscillators in contrary motion with a single control signal and various amplitude sampling arrangements.
